Taste of India



Everything I had was good here and I plan to go again. Samosas are my favoite thing to order, perhaps my favorite food ever, and these did not disappoint. Crispy, flaky shells with tender potato insides and the twin sauces accompanying were good if somewhat standard. Even better though, at this particular restaurant, is the naan. I ordered garlic naan and was very pleased to chew on the hunks of garlicky goodness, not burnt or tough or limp like other Indian establishments but fresh, hot and flavorful. The only dish that I could have lived without was the Palak Masala Paneer, frankly I've had better. The paneer, a mild cheese, was not as fantastic as I've had before, and the creamed spinach that is palak was a bit too creamed and one dimensional in flavor for me. Not bad, just not great. The service and atmosphere were both pleasant and unassuming, I am eager to go again and delve deeper into their extensive menu and see what tastes of India wait to be discovered.

God help me once again, for I am dying a slow and mouthwatering death while visiting your blog. Why do I do this to myself? It is like a bittersweet addiction each time I visit. If I am ever out your way, YOU AND I are going to DINNER!

Taste of India is pretty good. Maybe try Cedars down the road. But, I've found the Eastside has really good Indian Cuisine. Samosas are a fav of mine, too! Is it lunch time again? ;)

Lovely postage, Eli.

It's hard to beat a good plate of naan.
